Sonoran Flame Agate Rough from Mexico - $9.00/lb
Sonoran Flame Agate was mined almost two decades ago and there hasn’t been any on the market for years. We found this batch in our archives. Sonoran Flame Agate ranges from a clear base with red flames to a black
base with flames in red, burnt-orange and mustard colors.
As with all of the other species in the quartz family, agate takes a high polish with cerium oxide, but also takes a fine polish with tin oxide and diamond. Mohs hardness 6.5 to 7.
